They claim their commanders used to “psych up” soldiers before an operation

so they were ready to shoot indiscriminately.

This is the first time Israeli soldiers have come forward publicly with claims

which counter those of their bosses.

In a report first aired on Channel 4 News on Wednesday,

24-year-old tank commander Ohad remembers being told the night before the operation

that the entry into Gaza was to be “disproportionate”.
